Membership

Any disabled person who develops an interest in the aims of Disability Derbyshire Coalition for Inclusive Living and the Disabled People’s movement can join DDCIL as a member.

By becoming a member of DDCIL you lend your support to our work in promoting the full participation of Disabled People in the mainstream of life in Derbyshire and Derby.

As a User Led Organisation (ULO), a disabled person who is a member of DDCIL can vote at our Annual General Meeting, can nominate (or be nominated) for election to become a member of our Board of Trustees and so can influence the direction of our Organisation.

Non-disabled people, groups and organisations can also join Disability  Derbyshire Coalition for Inclusive Living as affiliate members and lend support to their local organisation of disabled people, but they do not have voting rights within our Organisation.
